A deterministic analytical model of LCAC operations is developed, based on the assumption that the mean time required to load the LCAC is an exponential function of the load weight. Simulation models of single queue and multiple queue LCAC operations are developed and the results compared to the deterministic model. Good agreement is obtained between the models. The results show that for most scenarios, the minimum time to complete the offload occurs for load sizes less than 60 tons
